I finally got around to watching this. I would like to think most of the time I'm a pretty positive fellow(at least on forums), but this show had to me GTFOOH moments in just the first 15 minutes. I'm not really sure what they're going for here, Mission Impossible meets Person of Interest maybe? Being ex military some things that played out more like a bad video game was the opening sequence when he surrenders and the black SUV's and helicopter showing up at the female leads place. Luckily they do have a good set of actors who have made up for cartoonish plot. As far a repetition? I think most shows have gotten that way and a bit lazy in their writing. One of the main reasons why I gave up the DVR and went down to basic cable, BD's and streaming. I'm really hoping this isn't as predictable as it seems and does get better. Spader deserves better IMO.

Neither show is must watch TV IMO. But I'll at least watch the next episode for each.
There will definitely be serialized elements. Her husband will be one of them of course. I'm sure at some point they will tell you exactly why he chose her. There has to be more to it than just the little bit he said in the Pilot.

This one flew under the radar for me and despite the eye roll moments I liked it enough to tune in a few more times

I'm looking forward to the next one... hopefully this makes it past the network-show cancellation rounds. Deception got cancelled far too soon and it was such a great show.

Hannibal, and now this. NBC is slowly crawling out of the grave.

2nd Episode was alright. Kind of felt like a rinse and repeat of the pilot at times, but I'm still interested enough to keep watching it.

I felt the pilot was better than the 2nd episode, or maybe I only cared for Megan Boone

The previews for episode 3 looked way better than last nights episode though

Thumbs up

Watched the first 2 episodes earlier, really enjoyed both, & I Love watching Spader chew up the scenes as he is prone to doing

So far, so good

Like I said over at the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. thread, I want to like this, but it has more cons than pros for me at the moment. If not for the actors I'd probably be out. Although I am curious how this whole
[Show spoiler]is he or isn't he with the husband pans out
.

I'm not sure how or why they're letting Red run around like this. It's the whole Patrick Jane "I'm two steps ahead of you at all times and will use an elaborate plan to get the bad guy without telling anyone about it" routine from The Mentalist, only with a high body count.

I would think the government would be angry that Red knew about the human trafficker all the time and planned to have her killed instead of turning her over. And he was working with an assassin that he allowed to kill a bunch of people.

For me, even thou they gave the "twist"away too early. I still enjoyed the episode. I have to agree with some how long can writers keep this up without loosing the audience..even thou Spader is great in it, he along can't carry the show..

They retained most of their audience from the pilot. The real test will be how they'll fare without The Voice as a lead-in, which won't be until January.

The season finale is December 17th. It is not airing again until Fall 2014 (if renewed).

No, not realism. More like a video game or Mission Impossible movie vibe. Lots of ludicrous stuff going on. So you have to throw all disbelief out the window. It is pure escapism, much like Person of Interest.

Then, why do I watch? My lady watches several shows I'm not into (I don't do much TV in general, I'm far too choosy to enjoy much). We have a smallish house, and I do other stuff while she views shows, but I see much\most of them.
